EP Review: Until We Die by Dizzy Bats

New York pop punks Dizzy Bats released their new EP Until We Die at the start of the week. It’s a delightfully snappy 3 song record that’s thoroughly enjoyable and infectious. Formed in the summer of 2011 and influenced by punk outfits out of the late 90s and early 2000s, they use power chords over heavily-picked basslines and infectious melodies as a vehicle for fun, energetic, Power Pop.

The overarching feeling is wholesome fun and reflection on life as a twentysomething. It abandons the  typical pop punk pitfall of childish lyrics, going for a more relatable and refined content, while maintaining the traditional pop punk structure.

‘With You I’m Dead’ is a formidable opener with its great melody and infectious guitar parts, it doesn’t break a mould or do anything particularly special yet it resonates and sounds fresh. Title track ‘Until We Die’ does more of the same with a more instantaneous melody.  It’s the track on the EP that resonates and sticks with you. ‘Count My Sleep’ plays the part of the dirty, storming punk rock closer. Again the hook and melodies are the highpoints.

If this is your first exposure to Dizzy Bats be prepared to be impressed. Stream the EP below.
